H&M has been full of surprises lately and the surprises continue with the news that the retailer is launching a plus-size clothing line for Spring called Inclusive. The 20-piece capsule collection will be available in US sizes 4 to 26 (Swedish sizes 32 to 54) and will be available exclusively...

Elle Quebec is joining the very short list of glossy magazines that have taken a risk and featured a plus size model on their cover. American model Justine LeGault sits on the cover of the May 2013 issue looking beautiful and confident. Is this sending a message to the fashion community? You...
